LEGO® Boy's Surface

Because The LEGO Company get paranoid about this sort of thing I suppose I'd better make it clear that I have no formal affiliation with them, that my views are my own and do not necessarily represent theirs, and so on. So if you think any of this is official you are as deluded as they are.

Like my LEGO punctured torus, this sculpture was built for the short article Wired magazine ran on my mathematical lego sculptures in their October 2006 issue. In the end they didn't use any pictures of it, which was a shame as it was mind-numbingly difficult to build. There's a lot of internal structure which can't be seen from the outside.


 As with most of my mathematical surfaces, I made use of some computer assistance.
